Far Infrared Treatments
Far Infrared treatments are optimal for those who need deep tissue healing.
What Is Far Infrared?
Far Infrared Rays (FIRs) are part of the non-visible light spectrum and according to scientists, humans emit small degrees of FIR through the skin and palms of the hands. Healers, qi gong masters and yogis are among those who emit a high degree of FIRs from their palms, which is what allows them to heal various ailments. In a FIR treatment, a conductive cream is rubbed onto your skin, and then a paddle emitting the far infrared rays is rubbed in a circular motion on your skin surface.
These treatments are enormously relaxing and pain-free. The FIR rays penetrate deep into your body, facilitating rapid healing. Most patients say the treatment feels like warm hands are massaging your body.
Our Far Infrared Machine
These treatments are done by our acupuncturist and massage therapist, Jodi Rose. The far infrared machine we use at OHM is the Indiba M-308, which is a medical grade far ifrared machine. A less powerful version of this machine is used for beaty treatments. We have found the far infrared to be more effective than acupucnture for certain conditions, in particular anxiety, depression, torn muscles, tight muscles that won’t release (hamstrings in particular) and bone regrowth after a break.

2. Far Infrared improves the circulation deep within the body. Stiffness and achiness are relieved and long standing muscle tears and sprains that have never fully been relieved are greatly improved and sometimes healed completely. Scar tissue is broken down and the far infrared encourages tissue repair and regeneration.
3. Far Infrared helps people lose weight and eliminate cellulite. Metabolism is improved and fat cells are dissolved. In conjunction with a proper eating program, patients find that they lose weight and reduce cellulite.

5. Far Infrared strengthens the Immune System by stiulating increased production of white blood cells and T-cells.
